Road Tripping? We'll steer you right!
Whether you're planning a weekend getaway or a cross-country expedition, packing the right essentials can significantly enhance your comfort and convenience throughout the journey. To help you make the most of your road trip, we have compiled a list of must-haves that will ensure a memorable and stress-free experience.
Before you leave
Safety should always be a priority when you're on the road. Prepare an emergency kit that includes essential items like a first aid kit, flashlight, spare tire, jumper cables, reflective triangles, and a basic toolkit. Additionally, keep a list of emergency numbers and contact information handy, including local towing services and roadside assistance providers.
Also ensure that your car has been serviced prior to the roadtrip and give your tires a check to make sure there is enough tread and that they are filled up to an appropriate amount so you are safe on the road
Car Mount for your smartphone - Your smartphone is your ultimate travel companion, serving multiple purposes such as navigation, communication, and entertainment. Invest in a sturdy car mount to keep your device secure and easily accessible while driving. This allows you to use GPS apps for navigation hands-free and enjoy music, podcasts, or audiobooks without distraction.
In-Car Charger and USB Cables - To keep all your devices powered up, it's essential to have an in-car charger with multiple USB ports. This allows you to charge multiple devices simultaneously while on the go. Additionally, pack a variety of USB cables to connect and charge different devices, including smartphones, tablets, cameras, and e-readers.
Tripods - This one is a bit of a no brainer but having a versatile tripod can help you get those scenic shots, capture precious moments with family and make it look like you traveled with someone even if you travelled alone 😉
Portable Power Bank- Ensure you never run out of battery power by carrying a reliable portable power bank. Road trips often involve long stretches between charging opportunities, and a power bank will keep your devices charged and ready for use. Look for a power bank with multiple USB ports and sufficient capacity to charge your phone, tablet, or other gadgets multiple times.
